Mandatory state observation of pregnant women?

Should Home Births Be Illegal?

Quote
There's a war going on between midwives and the medical community over the risks of delivering at home--who will win?

Currently, no legislation has been drawn up, but the American Medical Association (AMA) has agreed to back "Resolution 205," a request to support the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' (ACOG) stance that home births are dangerous.

I read stuff like this and to me it is just so blindingly obvious that the government is waging a multi-front war on independence.  Not individuals, or freedom, or drug users or any of that.  But independence.  All the others are just facets of this war.  Government despises people who don't need it.

A friend of mine sued her hospital because their ineptness caused her baby to die.  I helped her and she won, but these things are so hushed up by the hospitals and insurance companies that it's difficult to bring evidence to bear to dispute Resolution 205.

I heard a radio ad yesterday (pushing a hospital) that said 1 in 10 infants need neonatal intensive care.

WHY?

When real statistics are examined, home births are much safer than hospital births.  This is about control and money.  The AMA started this way way back and it has been an uphill climb for midwives and women in general ever since.

It is apaling how much of the birth industry isn't based on any science at all.  Many of the drugs used to induce labor are not approved for that use.  Most labor inductions are unnecesssary.  Induction leads to further intervention ALL of the time.
Did you know, the actual average term is 41 weeks?  It took an awfully long time for anyone to actually check that.  40 weeks is an invented number.  I personally know a woman induced at 38 weeks so her Dr could get the birth (and payment) under his belt before he left for vacation.
 
Deep breath.....

I could go on.  This is a hot subject for me.

FedGov blames midwives for documenting illegal aliens.

‘Stuck in a free country'

Quote
When Lupita Sanchez applied for a passport, she didn't expect that her U.S. citizenship would be called into question.

But three months after completing her passport application - 38 years after she was born in downtown Brownsville - Sanchez received a shocking letter from the U.S. Department of State.

After explaining that her application had been closed, the letter states, "Once you obtain U.S. citizenship, you may execute another application for a U.S. passport."

Sanchez was incredulous. She has been voting and paying taxes in the United States for 20 years.

But along with hundreds of other South Texans delivered by midwives, the validity of Sanchez's birth certificate, and her U.S. citizenship, is being called into question.

Because the pharmaco-industrial complex says so, and they're there to help you:-)
